As a member of the Generals Staff was he also a member of the 24th Foot and if not what collar tabs and facing would have appeared on his tunic? Looking for an answer if it be known and appreciate your help.......Joe The1stLt

No.
A man can be recruited into GS from any regiment or corps of the British or Colonial Army.
I have no idea of Maybin's parent unit.
Julian Whybra would be your best bet.

There's a lot of information on George Mabin ( Mabin being the correct spelling) in Volume One
" Legacy Hero's Of Rorke's Drift" By Kris Wheatley.

Thanks for your help and reply Admin The spelling of his last name I acquired from the following which appeares as follows from the rorkesdriftvc web site

This Roll is compiled from research undertaken by Julian Whybra and Norman Holme and is largely based on the Chard and Bourne Rolls. Biographical notes on the soldiers of the 24th Foot who were present at Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift 22/23 January 1879 are contained in both 'The Roll Call for Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift' by Julian Whybra, published by Roberts Medals Publications and 'The Noble 24th' by Norman Holme, published in 1999 and obtainable from the South Wales Borderers' Museum, Brecon.

General's Staff

Maybin, G.W. Colour-Sergeant.

But I also found here on the forum Chard's Roll which also shows him a member of the General Staff as well and listed as Sergeant Maybin.

Was it not suggested that the remains of the soldier found at Isandlwana a few years ago, was also a member of the General Staff.

Well. A button from a General Staff uniform was found near the remains.

Hi 1st Lt.

The button found at iSandlwana is thought to have belonged to Col Sgt M.C. Keane, however, since its discovery there have been some doubts about this. Many soldiers lost tunic buttons and replaced them with any other buttons they could lay their hands on, so some people say that it could well have happened like this. But the button found was from a uniform of the GSC, and the only person killed at iSandlwana known to have been on the GSC was Col Sgt Keane. There were also some bones found with the button, and there was also some debate about these, with some saying that it could well have been that a Zulu killed the wearer, then took the tunic for a trophy, but was then himself killed and the bones might be those of his, so it is not all cut and dried, and I am not sure if anything has been resolved about this issue. If I recall correctly, I think that the GSC may have worn a dark blue uniform, but I cannot be sure of this, however, hopefully there should be someone on the forum who could answer your question.

Best regards and keep up your great work with the models. Salute

Hi All .
This was well covered on here a couple of years back , 1st Lt I suggest you or anyone wanting information on this topic use the search box . From memory Martin is correct as saying the chap linked to the button is indeed M.C.Keane . As far as I'm aware nothing much has ever come of it . The RDVC Forum also covered it extensively
Cheers 90th.
